  • Mice fence for pantry?

    Best answer: This all sounds quite elaborate. A lot of larders used to have something called a meat safe - a metal mesh box intended to keep flies off. Mice have been known to get into them, so making things rodent proof is quite tricky. If you know they can get through a hole about the same diameter as a biro you can see that... show more
    Best answer: This all sounds quite elaborate. A lot of larders used to have something called a meat safe - a metal mesh box intended to keep flies off. Mice have been known to get into them, so making things rodent proof is quite tricky. If you know they can get through a hole about the same diameter as a biro you can see that you need quite a fine mesh.

    I get the odd mouse from next door, but as I am fussy about not leaving food around they don't tend to settle.

    I put unopened packets that I use whole into large clip on lidded plastic boxes. See thru so I can tell what I have.
    If mice can't smell food they won't investigate. Packet soups are one of the most vulnerable.

    Anything else like rice goes into plastic cartons from IKEA. http://www.ikea.com/PIAimages/45250_PE14...

    They particularly like paracetamol capsules I have found, which probably kills them. So they get boxed up as well.

    If you suspect mice, wash everything down with bleach, and try deterrents like peppermint oil which they do not like.

  • Why do American houses have so little lights?

    They have like small bulbs on the ceiling and lots of table lamps. Why don't they just use fluorescent lights in every room? Won't that be much brighter? Is the electricity bill in US that expensive?

  • How to get rid of a small fly?

    There's this tiny fly (not a gnat, it's a little bigger than that) that's been bugging me (no pun intended) for days. It's in my bedroom, and I never get a chance to kill it because it vanishes so quickly. When I eat in my room (even if it's just a small snack) I can't even sit back and... show more

It's in my bedroom, and I never get a chance to kill it because it vanishes so quickly. When I eat in my room (even if it's just a small snack) I can't even sit back and enjoy it, I have to hurry up and eat it before the fly decides to land on it. What do I do?

  • Can urine kill grass?

    So I normally go for a walk around a near by lake almost every day and I normally take a piss behind this particular tree whenever I need to, but I've been noticing that the grass patch I piss on is dying, which used to be completely full of green healthy grass. So can urine kill grass?
